  • Patent number: 11383698
    Abstract: Provided are: a device and a method for controlling vehicle movement, with which it is possible to suppress causing uncomfortableness to vehicle occupants and causing unstable behavior during turning by automatic travel control; and a device and a method for generating a target course. In a vehicle capable of automatically controlling lateral acceleration occurring in the vehicle, the present invention controls the acceleration occurring in the vehicle such that jerk, which is the change over time of acceleration, becomes the greatest in a region where the lateral acceleration that occurs upon entering a curve is equal to or less than half the acceleration during normal turning, and the jerk decreases as the acceleration increases.

  • Patent number: 10389446
    Abstract: A method includes capturing images with an image sensor while switching the shutter speed of the image sensor between a first speed and a second, higher speed. When a captured subject is a barcode, a barcode image is obtained when the shutter speed is the first speed, and barcode information is obtained by decoding the barcode in the image. When a captured subject is a light source, a bright line image including bright lines corresponding to a plurality of exposure lines included in the image sensor is obtained when the shutter speed is the second speed, and a visible light signal is obtained as visible light information by decoding a pattern of the bright lines in the obtained bright line image. The method also includes displaying an image obtained through capturing performed when the shutter speed is the first speed.
